Introduction: Tasty Carob Flour Gluten Free Cookies Nutella Filled
If you are gluten intolerant but don't want to give up the taste the good things, these cookies are ideal for you. Also good for non-intolerant people, carob flour with its particular flavor is rich in natural sugars and carbohydrates, but low in fat. Unlike cocoa powder, of which it is considered a substitute as it recalls its taste, it does not contain caffeine and being of vegetable origin, it does not even contain cholesterol, therefore it will conquer you not only for its flavor, but also for its properties and with a tasty Nutella soft heart will give you a pleasant for breakfast or a delicious snack for your children!
